Small but perfectly formed: Homes for sale at a bargain price
- Credit: Auction House
The housing market has so far weathered the coronavirus storm better than some sectors - but it is not just mansions that are changing hands.
Norfolk's market has seen a clutch of small abodes go up for grabs - and some at bargain prices of even less than £100,000.
Jamie Minors, who runs Minors & Brady estate agents, said: "Homes for sale for around £100,000 are a great buy to let opportunity as in lower value areas, they make for great rentals and produce great yields of between 5-7pc, better than the bank's current base rate.
"With first time buyers keen to leave their family homes in lockdown, it's also great for those to have their independence.
"Generally, the market is very busy. There aren't as many sellers coming to market but many more buyers and far more serious buyers as well."
